Hey, what kind of browser do you use? --Chetblongtalk to me 17:37, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Good, then I recommend that you use twinkle, it will help you to revert vandalism and warn vandals. I looked at your edits an you are reverting vandalism well, but it would help if, when you warn the vandal, you would put the name of the article the person vandalized, Twinkle will help you do that.

Thanks for your help![edit]

Thanks for fighting vandlism on Wikipedia! It has been brought to my attention that you have been trying to block users. YOu can not block useres unless yo are an admin. To get an admins intervention go to wp:aiv and report it there! Thanks! Jayson (talk) 03:31, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

McLeod's Daughters[edit]

Hey, neither Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/McLeods Daughters - The First Season nor McLeods Daughters - The First Season even exist. I deleted your edit to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Log/2008 March 25. - CobaltBlueTony™ talk 15:37, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Yeah sorry about that, i realised it straight after i did it and went to fix it up straight away., i had the wrong title copied because i was looking to make sure that article i listed didn't exist and then i forgot to copy the actual article that i wanted listed so i ended up pasting the wrong article (did that make sense?). Any how it's all fixed now, thanks for letting me know! Cheers Printer222 (talk) 15:42, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Okay, I didn't know whether you were anticipating its creation or what. Thanks for clarifying! - CobaltBlueTony™ talk 15:44, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Trent armstrong[edit]

Hi Printer222,

Regarding your question, the copy-and-paste move can, in some cases, be considered a form of vandalism in that it constitutes a blatant hoax/misinformation and breaks the licensing requirements of Wikipedia. So in the future, you can go ahead and tag the more blatant violations with WP:CSD#G3, which I used when deleting this article.

Thanks for the hard work! --jonny-mt 06:36, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Home and away character pages that have been deleted- issues[edit]

Deleted again. I have also salted for a month given the 8 recreations since the end of March. Cheers.--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 08:48, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

I thought I'd consolidate the whole Home and Away character issue by using redirects for nn characters. Bold? - CobaltBlueTony™ talk 15:31, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of new stubs[edit]

Hi. You recently requested a speedy deletion for Korean immigration to Hawaii with a rationale of CSD A1, a short article lacking context.[1] You made this request approximately one minute after a new editor[2] created this article[3] at my request,[4] and you left him a warning on his talk page.[5] First, the article did not meet CSD A1, and while it was certainly short (having been created as a stub less than a minute before you tagged it), the content was clear and in context of the subject, a subject which is entirely notable, encyclopedic, and supported by dozens of books and hundreds of academic articles. I would ask at this time that you refrain from tagging any and all new articles for speedy deletion until you become more familiar with the process. Instead of tagging new articles for speedy, please try to help copy edit and expand them first; you could just as easily have fixed the formatting, added a hawaii stub message, categories, and helped expand the article. That you chose to delete a legitimate article without first helping to improve it, raises concerns about your editing. Viriditas (talk) 11:59, 15 May 2008 (UTC)


When i first reviewed the article in question i had no idea what the significance of the topic was, and to me it did not make sense, you are right, i should have given the editor time to expand on it but it's not like i went out to intentionally cause harm

I am sorry if i made a judgment error however we all make mistakes from time to time, its part of being human. First of all i have made heaps of speedy deletion requests that have been valid.

Secondly the fact that made a judgment error for 1 article and you have concerns over my editing ability is offensive. Thirdly i would invite you to read Wikipedia:Assume good faith, the fact that you have reacted in such an nonconstructive way gives me doubts about your ability to handle and communicate to other editors, a skill that is vital when it comes to the wikipedia project, as it is a team effort, not an individual effort. Next time you deal with this type of case again, i would recommend that you leave a friendly message not a message that comes across as offensive. That would be more constructive.

The speedy deletion process is setup so that in the case a judgment of error is made the page will not be deleted. All speedy delete cases are reviewed by an Admin, so if a mistake is made no harm really is done I don't know how up to date you are with the deletion process so i would invite you to read up and review WP:DEL#REASON

I will not be abiding your request to cease tagging articles for speedy deletion, however i will make sure in the future that when necessary time is given to expand on an article before i tag an article. Remember to try and assume good faith Printer222 (talk) 12:29, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

I'm sorry you find my concerns "offensive", but if you wish to become an administrator, you will have to learn to take constructive criticism. You claim that I have assumed bad faith, but I have merely restated the facts of the matter and made a suggestion about how you can improve your editing. Since you don't seem to value my input, there's nothing more I can do except bring this to AN/I the next time it happens. Viriditas (talk) 12:34, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
I do value your impact and i do than you for bringing this to my attention. If had not alerted me to this i would have never known and would not been able to learn from my mistakes.

It may not have been your intention but your message came across aggressively and i took offense to it and reacted to it, my message probably caused offense to you, and for this i am sorry. Lets just put it down to a case of mis-interpretation and lets move on. Printer222 (talk) 12:43, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

No worries. How could my message have been better addressed? I'm always looking to improve. I saw the problem, gave you diffs, made suggestions, and raised concerns. Perhaps I could have eliminated the last part? Would that have helped? Viriditas (talk) 12:45, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
The whole second part if what kind of tipped me over the edge. [quote] I would ask at this time that you refrain from tagging any and all new articles for speedy deletion until you become more familiar with the process. Instead of tagging new articles for speedy, please try to help copy edit and expand them first; you could just as easily have fixed the formatting, added a hawaii stub message, categories, and helped expand the article. That you chose to delete a legitimate article without first helping to improve it, raises concerns about your editing. [/quote]
It may not have been your intention but it made me fell that because i made 1 judgment error you thought that you had the right to tell me what to do. Instead of typing 'please try' you could have written something like 'you might find it helpful if you tried to copy edit....' that way i would have thought you were trying to give me advice, not telling me what to do. And i don't think there was a need to ask me to refrain from adding speedy delete tags, like i said it was 1 simple judgment error, people do make mistakes. likewise i found it offensive that because i made 1 mistake you then questioned my editing abilities, after all the constructive edits i have made, it just made me fell worthless. But once again its up to ones interpretation, maybe i'm half to blame for interpreting it the wrong way. The first half of the message was fine as you were just detailing what you were talking about. I hope you do find this constructive, i'm now just trying to help you. Cheers Printer222 (talk) 12:57, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the feedback! Those are good suggestions for improving my communication skills. Thanks, again. Viriditas (talk) 13:00, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Editor Review[edit]

You will recall that we had quite a lengthy discussion the other day about a mistake i had made. We did disagree but in the end of the day i thought we had sorted things out. You gave me feedback and i took this feedback on and i stated this to you. The aim of an editor review is to provide feedback to an editor. So my question is, what was the point of you brining up this subject on my editor review (which purpose is to give me feedback) when you had already given me feedback and i took this on?? I did say that we should move on, but it seems that you didn't want to move on! Printer222 (talk) 11:17, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

I added the comments to the editor review three minutes after[6] I made my initial post to your talk page.[7]. You didn't even respond until 35 minutes after I had posted to your talk page[8] so your allegation is unfounded. If you would like me to give you a more balanced editor review, I would be happy to do so. Let me know. Viriditas (talk) 01:03, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Butterfly cat[edit]

Hi there. I removed your addition of the butterfly swimmers cat to various articles. This is because under Wikipedia guidelines, the article was already in "Australian butterfly swimmers", which is a subset of the fly swimmers cat. This is to prevent redudndant overcrowding of cats. Thanks, Blnguyen (bananabucket) 01:30, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Watch it[edit]

Careful with the reverting in the List of Armenian-Russians, it seems that BUTUSA is actually helping us.  Channel ®   14:06, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

You might be right, but i reverted the edits because they removed a name from the list that is legit. So my first thought was that it was an account created by the vandals. I'll continue to watch it and observe what happens. Printer222 (talk) 14:11, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

DvyBot Request[edit]

Yes you can make a request, but as it still is in testing, it may take some time before the request is fully run through. Make the request here using this template. See the template documentation on the template page, or User:DvyBot/Request/docDvyjones (tc) 08:02, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Cast Changes for Home and Away![edit]

I saw that you had deleted the upcoming cast section to the main Home & Away page. Here was a link, to an article I had seen on Backtothebay.net last week that confirms some of the new characters. I was not registered so could not post on the main page but added a topic in the discussion page. Someone had mentioned that this mention was a exact copy of a newspaper article published that day. Just wanted to put you in the know.

http://www.backtothebay.net/news/2008/06/10/.shtml 69.157.168.131 (talk) 16:32, 19 June 2008 (UTC)samusek2

Hi there. Thanks for your concern but this upcoming cast information should not be on the article for many reasons.

First of all if you go and read WP:BALL you will see that the policy states that "All articles about anticipated events must be verifiable, and the subject matter must be of sufficiently wide interest that it would merit an article if the event had already occurred". Ill talk about verifable source in a miniute but for now, These characters entering the show is an anticpated event and the fact that this of sufficently wide interest means that this information should not be included in the article, full stop.

Even if this was a major event, the source of the information is also a concern. WP:SELFPUBLISHED states that"Self-published sources should never be used as third-party sources about living persons". This applies to the issue we're discussing because if a character is joining the obviously the information is also about the actor joining the show. The website you claimed to get the information from is classed as self-published its a fan site. You claim that it is from TV weeks, thats a fine source but remember to refrence it properly. HOWEVER because of the policy outlined above about anticipated events even using the TV week magazine as a source still violates that policy.

I hope i've explained myself well. Any more questions just leave a message here. Cheers Printer222 (talk) 00:43, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Reply: Swimming[edit]

Per your message on my talk page, thank you for your hard work. I created the swimming wikiproject a while back. I'm very happy that you have decided to take up quite a challenge. Although I am rarely on Wikipedia anymore -simply small edits for the time being - I will check from time to time your efforts when possible.

Cheers, -wpktsfs 18:27, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

regexps[edit]

I'm glad that helped. ".*" means any number of characters, and since regexps are greedy, that really means as many characters as possible in a line. "\*" means an actual asterisk. " *" means any number of spaces. Etc. So...

.*\* *\[\[Mark Prindle\]\] \(6/10\).*

...means

Select as many characters as possible on a line, 
then an asterisk, 
then an optional space or spaces, 
then "[[Mark Prindle]] (6/10)", 
and then as many characters as possible, to the end of the line.

That's how it gets the whole line. Here's another tip: if you're in the "find and replace"->"normal settings", and you right-click on your find-and-replace line, one of the menu options you get is "test regexp". This will let you try out regexps on lines, and it really helps to figure out things. All the best, – Quadell (talk) (random) 14:52, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Mark Prindle[edit]

Hi, I noticed your bot request for adding the removal of Mark Prindle's reviews from the album infoboxes. In the bot request you've used the template {{rating-10|*}} in one of the expressions. As this is now a deprecated template would you need to add {{rating|*|10}} as well? Also, do you need to take account of case - ie {{Rating-10|*}} as well as {{rating-10|*}}? --JD554 (talk) 11:58, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out, i actually didn't realise that. (maybe i should've done more research). I hadn't come accross any of the '{{rating|*|10}}' ratings but now if my bot does it will just remove it like normal.
As for case sensitive, i'd already considered this but i will try a specific test just to make sure its working.
I've just hit another problem that we're trying to address right now. Shouldn't be too hard, and then ill be able to complete the trial
Thanks for assistance. Printer222 (talk) 14:21, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
No problem. To be fair to you the {{rating}} template hasn't really taken off yet and there probably aren't any for Mark Prindle's reviews, but I suppose it's better safe than sorry. Cheers --JD554 (talk) 14:35, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Issue with TinucherianBot in Project Banner Tagging for WP:FOOD[edit]

Thank you for expressing your concerns on the recent issue Issue with TinucherianBot in Project Banner Tagging for WP:FOOD . I have made some comments and explainations at Wikipedia_talk:Bots/Requests_for_approval#TinucherianBot and I am leaving this note just for your information -- TinuCherian (Wanna Talk?) - 08:47, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

AWB tasks[edit]

Wow! It looks like you've been expanding into new bot tasks. Emblem-fun.svg Will you be a regular bot runner now, helping out with new requests? (I guess if you teach a man to fish, he'll help catch fish for other people too!) – Quadell (talk) (random) 00:32, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Yep. I've only got approval for taging certain articles for a wikiProject and the Mark prindle task that you helped me with though. I'm keeping an eye on the request page and anything i can do i'll do. (i'll try and keep to the basic stuff for now, i learnt a lesson or 2 with the mark prindle task, i thought it was going to be simple, it wasnt). I'm trying to expand my programing knowledge as i go and trying to learn new things, thats why i enjoyed the regex task even though i ran into difficulties. I know the basics of it now and hopfully as i go on, ill just expand my knowledge. Once again thanks so much for your help. Printer222 (talk) 00:46, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Re your request[edit]

Please Do it if you can with AWB Suyogaerospacetalk to me! 04:58, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Thats fine, ive edited your message and formated it a bit, i hope that is alright. You should recicve the message on your talk page, very shortly. Ill start the process now. Printer222 (talk) 07:25, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Thank you very much sir (its better if you reply on my talk page)--Suyogaerospacetalk to me! 07:43, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

This BRFA might interest you .. Happy Boting :) -- TinuCherian (Wanna Talk?) - 09:43, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
Thats cool, i knew you were still dealing with your bot's block so i just thought i'd help out, since it was easy enough to do. I thought it would be easier than getting the user to copy and paste the message for every talk page
Don't worry i wont make it a regular thing and take your work away from you. I'm pleased that your bot is finally been unblocked. Cheers Printer222 (talk) 10:25, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
No No..., I am only happy that more and more people comes to help each other... ( I will unhappy only if I am paid for this job :) Just Kidding ! ) Keep up the good work -- TinuCherian (Wanna Talk?) - 10:35, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Wikiproject Swimming banner tagging[edit]

Hi Printer222, Any chance you could run your bot again through the Swimming articles once again tagging those without project banners, and auto-assessing those using a stub template. There are too many new articles to keep on catch up with, and this will help to keep on top of it from now on! Regards, Yboy83 (talk) 14:44, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Mis-tagging[edit]

Ruehl No.925 is not one bit about swimming, although they do sell "swim wear". Shouldn't the bot require more than one hit to set it off? Thanks, CliffC (talk) 04:04, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
